So recently I have been trying to get this weight thing under control but its really hard so I asked some one I know about their diet plan. A non diabetic. I am not interested in joining anything or buying food other than from a grocery store but I am interested in learning maybe a different way to eat what I eat. So I asked and she spent the whole time trying to convince me that I need to speak to her diet company becuz they could probably get me off insulin...I know....needless to say thats when i knew this was going to be a challenge...her theory was there is always a way to fix something through diet...It was so frustrating becuz I was trying to educate her on what Type 1 is and she just knew I was just being stubborn. She kept talking about taking less insulin and i was like no im good i dont need help that. My diabetes is fine i just want to lose weight. She didnt get it, in her mind food, fat and diabetes are all the same. I tried to explan not necessarly in type1 becuz everything effects BG not just food... She was all did you know the pancreas is the only organ that rejuvenates itself and I was all that's the liver...deep sigh...its sooooo annoying and sad that people are just not receptive when you try to tell them about something you are going through every second of your life becuz they just know its different. I am big on eating healthy but not everything can be cured through eating a salad.
Let this be a reason why I don't share too much with non diabetics becuz they just don't get it...its like if I could be cured with diet don't u think I would ve heard of that by now...No one wants to live off insulin and all its lovely splender. As if I like just like to have my body malfunctioned on purpose...
Lol...I know right
Diabetes Boot Camp?
I have been told that also...lol
Yea people without diabetes think all diabetics are banned from eating sugar of any amount,my boos once told me "You are not a real diabetic if you were you would not be drinking that juice". to witch I replied "I have my diabetic membership card right here" and then I pulled out my humalog and syringe he shut up real quick.
That was part of my conversation with this lady, she swears I could get cured or better if I get on a diet....It took all my willpower to stop myself from smacking her..lol
No we don't...wouldn't it be nice if we did
I def feel like sometimes I control and others it controls me...its like having a new born 24/7...ur never quite sure what's wrong with it becuz it doesn't speak...
OMG ppl like that soooooo get me!!! My husband has told me he knowsas much about D as i do. ERRRRRRR NO U DON'T!!!! Leave me alone!! Always my reply. Not too nicely either LOL! I've tried to get ppl to understand the D and they wind up making me upset b/c they knowmore that I do. OK WAIT HERE I've been a D for 38 years and U think u know more that me???????? The only thing my hubby knows about D is when I start getting low and acting crazy. I have no warning system now. The rest of the crap he dosen't know about!
